fishing allure

took off a little early this week to get in a little more fishing, but i need more tools.
i think the wife would like these hot pink lures: but the fish? i dont know...what kind of sea creature are they supposed to represent?

boats in my hood

this old boat has been sitting still for as long as i have lived here...
i have never scene anyone at the house either.
i like the cool fifties design.

when fish attack

when i was a kid, my two biggest fears were quicksand and piranhas: if i accidently fell into quicksand, i risked being smothered and eaten by a boa constrictor...piranhas could eat me alive, leaving only my skeleton to surface on the beach. and see, i was right: at least about the piranhas!

the weekend catch

the fish are in the bay!
it is lucky i am learning to love eating rockfish, cuz i cant stop catching them!
lately, i have been hauling in my limit-and more-of healthy striped bass every time i go out...this beauty was number three, so back to the bay he went!

today's problem: boat or bike?

decisions! decisions! sometimes it is so hard to decide whether to take the boat out or the bike for a spin, but the new harley boat makes life so simple: i can do both! well, 15 feet is a bit small for the rough waters of the chesapeake, but i could whip around some coves on a nice flat day. the harley mini speed boat is a custom from st.martin's. it sports a harley v-twin engine and promises tons of fun. more here on the kneeslider.
